Explain how the procedures of the work setting protect both children and young people and practitioners. (7.2)
All staff in the setting are DBS checked before they start and the DBS is checked every year. We have clear health and Saftey procedures that are mainted everyday within the nursery. The nursery staff also complete regular internal training such as first aid, food preperation, and safegaurding. A buzzer system is used for parents and visitors to the nursery so that strangers can't enter the building. Most perminant full time members of staff have the key for the door to let themselfs in and out of the building. Regualr room checks are carried out to ensure there are no missing children and mental head counts are done inbetween these checks. We have a password system for anyone who is picking up a child where we haven't seen them before i.e if a grandparents is picking up a child, they will tell us the password set out by the regualr person who picks them up, in order to gain acsess to the building and children. Garden checks are carried out 3 times a day to ensure that he area is safe for children to play in. Allergy sheets are kept in all rooms and the kitchin to ensure that children are recieving the correct food. There is built in stairs on the nappy changing unit for bigger children to use or where a staff member may be suffering with some back issues.
